I keep seeing these references to "development". Why is development happening in the disto-specific packaging? If your "Developping", shouldn't that all be in collaboration with upstream, and hence using the upstream VCS, whatever-that-may-be-please-let-it-be-git... I understand the need to have differences/patches to packages for distro-specific reasons, and back-porting fixes of stuff upstream has already fixed but that debian's not allows to use because of the strict version-non-changing requirements... But why is "Development" happening locally in the debian packages and not upstream? Or am I mis-understanding the connotations of "development" in this context? a. -- Aidan Van Dyk Create like a god, [EMAIL PROTECTED] command like a king, http://www.highrise.ca/ work like a slave.
